"One-card wincons" to consider: Insurrection , Expropriate , Painful Quandary , Rise of the Dark Realms , Revel in Riches , Cut / Ribbons . Perhaps Clone Legion , Rite of Replication , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Hour of Promise , Blatant Thievery , Grave Betrayal , or Mind's Dilation .

The Chain Veil , Inexorable Tide , Contagion Clasp , and Contagion Engine maybe?

One thing to think about is getting Nicol Bolas flipped and maybe joined by the other planeswalkers and casting Obliterate , Jokulhaups , Devastation , or Decree of Annihilation . Almost guaranteed ultimates. Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God would be the best--proxy for now and include in first build?

@TheRyanHayes15 Thanks for the suggestions. I am pretty excited for Echo of Eons . My play group doesn’t like Omniscience either. It makes my turns take forever. Since there is a lot of card draw in the deck, I tend to just play my deck after playing Omniscience. Which includes extra turn spells, which just make it last longer.

I like the ramp but I would take out the talismans as they slow the deck down Mana Vault , Mana Crypt , Expedition Map and definitely Chromatic Lantern for mana fixing my nek deck doesn't require nek to win, Wheel of Fortune is better than Winds of Change as that is only good if they have multiple cards in hand eg ive had it only do 1 damage to me, remove Omniscience its too much mana add Past in Flames spell recursion.

TPC on Big TT'ed Combo! (Turn 3 win) Thrasios Tymna [EDH]

1 week ago

Food Chain plus Misthollow Griffin or Eternal Scourge plus Aetherflux Reservoir or Walking Ballista is a consistent turn 3-4 combo. Mana is zero issue with this deck, as I can achieve infinite mana by T3, typically T4. So, I'd have the 3 card Food Chain package online as quickly as I would a Thrasios, Triton Hero plus Power Artifact or Mana Reflection plus Grim Monolith or Basalt Monolith 3 card Scry/draw, though Thrasios requires a 4th card to win. And so the FC combo is cheaper and more efficient. The other win cons are there to make drawing a win con with the Thrasios route more consistent should someone counter/exile one or two. Thrasios himself doesn't win the game, he needs something into which to dump that mana, he simply gets you to that something.

The rest of the deck is built around the slow game should I encounter a 4 man pod with lots of control, or if they know what's up and all gang up to hate on me haha. Though there are cards on my list to replace, such as Academy Rector plus Omniscience . Its just not consistent enough of a route to pursue. More Counter magic or creature removal could replace it, or a couple more big hitting creatures for when I go for the Dovescape long game.

SP3CTR3_chelts on Rakdos commander

1 week ago

yes the rackdos colours has a nice removal package and access to the best tutors and some reasonable draw so is not a lacking colour combo (like boros lacking draw or simic lacking removal). They do suffer from enchantment removal that can suffer to the decks that love them, a classic wide selessnya deck which does not have to worry about its key enchantments will have a distinct advantage: Privileged Position , Doubling Season , Aura Shards ...ect, or a deck which runs enchantment peices as its win con like Food Chain or Exquisite Blood / Sanguine Bond .

But colour combination is not the problem, all two colour combinations lack something, it is the demon tribal bit I think is the issue no demons actually benefit from other demons, its only the generic pick a creature type tribal that works. They are very expensive cards in terms of mana which dont pay off as much as other cards, what would you rather have one large demon which destroys all opponents creatures or a card like Omniscience which kinda just wins the game.

Rahvin_dom on Draconic Overlord

MoizyBoy, the main combo is casting Isochron Scepter and imprinting Dramatic Reversal . This requires having enough mana rocks (not lands) to produce at least 3 mana, preferably including one or more colors. When you activate the Scepter for 2 generic mana, you get to cast a copy of Dramatic Reversal, which untaps all your nonland permanents, including the mana rocks and the Scepter. Since it costs 2 to activate but you make 3 mana each time, you can generate infinite mana. With Torment of Hailfire , this makes an infinitely large Torment, which will win the game on the spot if it resolves. You can also cast a not-infinite but still really big Torment using Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth .

You can also cast Omniscience , which lets you cast spells from your hand without paying any mana. If you follow that up with Obliterate , you'll be able to cast spells (because Omniscience), but nobody else can because you blew up all the lands and artifacts and creatures. You should be able to capitalize on that to win, even just with combat damage by casting creatures for free and attacking, or by reanimating dead creatures out of your opponents graveyards if they have something better.

There's a small amount of reanimation to let you grab threats from opponents graveyards and win that way, with or without the above. The Scarab God could potentially even drain teh table by making 4/4 Zombie token copies of creatures in the grave, and with additional Zombie tokens from Waste Not .

All of the card draw can combine with The Locust God to make enough flying hasty Insect tokens to swarm the table and win through combat damage.

And of course with Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God and The Elderspell you can potentially win from Bolas's ultimate ability. You'll need to Damnation or similar to kill all teh Legendary creatures first, and you need at least 2 other Planeswalkers on teh board (they can be yours or another players, doesnt matter) to do it all in one turn, but the Elderspell killing at least 2 other walkers will let Bolas hit his ultimate, and if there are no other players with a Planeswalker or Legendary creature, you just win. It's like if Nicol Bolas won the War of the Spark storyline, which is perfect.

Those are the main options. Most everything else is an enabler to get one of those things to happen.

Well, there already is one called Omniscience , but alrighty.


Omniscience

Enchantment (Mythic)

Hexproof

, : Look at Target player's hand.

, : Scry X.

, Fateseal X.

, : Target player exiles the top X cards of their library.

Knowing is half the battlefield. Unfortunately for you, you won't be around for the other half.


Oooh that was fun. I don't normally do monoblue but damn I really enjoyed this one.

Fit the card to the name: Neodymium Ravager (Neodymium is an extremely powerful type of magnet, btw.)
